If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.— 2 Corinthians 5:17
Is there not a cause? – I Samuel 17:29
I am convinced that if ministers and other biblically oriented individuals understood “why” they should be involved in politics that they would more easily and effectively learn “how” to be involved.
This booklet “The New Creatures and The New Politics” by Dr. William H. Marshner, a member of the Council of 56 of the Religious Roundtable, is a veritable masterpiece from a scriptural and philosophical standpoint on the very important subject. It is a “must” reading for the person who really wants to have a basic knowledge on this vital matter.

Vatican II clearly holds that there is a rightful religious liberty which, within “due limits,” even objectively false religions ought to enjoy vis-à-vis the State. In what follows, I shall refer to this claim as the “basic holding” of the Declaration Dignitatis humanae, whose title I shall shorten to DH.

An Essay on Religious Democracy

This is a translation of a short but famous work by the great French monarchist writer, Charles Maurras, founder of the pro-monarchy movement L’Action Française (very active between 1895 and World War II). This book was written between 1905 and 1907 as a series of newspaper articles (really essays) dealing with the interesting figure of Mark Sangnier, son of a banker and prominent Catholic, but also the oratorically gifted leader of a pro-democracy youth movement called the Sillon.

Bartlett Amendment Dropped From HEW Bill
By W. H. MARSHNER
(Special to The Wanderer)
December 5, 1974
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Senate and House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted in favor of HR 15580, the appropriations bill for the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, without the anti-abortion language proposed in an amendment sponsored by Sen. Dewey Bartlett (R., Okla ).

It isn’t only Salvador Allende and General Pinochet whose views and policies are misrepresented in this Country. That is bad enough, but it is only politics. When the Chilean bishops, however, successors to the Apostles, are subjected to the same treatment, then a far more profound mischief is done, to the hurt of God’s people throughout the world.
Chile First-Hand — A Report From Santiago

PART II: ALLENDE AND WATERGATE
People in the United States have no conception of how people in Chile feel about their former President, Salvador Allende. We Yankees, with our tame politics, have never felt that way about one of our Chief Executives. We have historical memories which give us some basis for comparison; for instance, we remember how Americans in the millions turned against Herbert Hoover, and the older Republicans among us can remember the peculiar hatred that blazed in some quarters against Franklin Roosevelt. But these comparisons do not bring us very far. We have never had the firm conviction, in the majority of the electorate, that one of our duly elected Presidents was using the full power of his office not only to enrich himself and to pervert justice but to change even the basic rules of the game: to bend and break the Constitution itself.
But maybe we are getting there. What if it’s all true, what they say about Richard Nixon?

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Fr. Frederick McGuire, C.M., head of the U.S. Catholic Conference’s Latin American Division, has challenged William H. Marshner’s report “Chile First Hand — A Report From Santiago,” which was published in the May 23rd issue (and subsequent issues) of The Wanderer, describing the story as “propagandizing for the bloodstained Chilean junta.” Marshner has responded to the charges, calling them libelous, and he demanded an immediate retraction.
